Stolen car racket busted, 2 held
NEW DELHI: Delhi Police busted a gang that procured documents of scrapped vehicles and then bought stolen cars of the same make and swapped their chassis numbers.
These vehicles were then sold with new identities along with original-looking documents. Two men have been arrested and 11 vehicles were recovered, police said.
The two were identified as 36-year-old Rahis, from Muzaffarnagar in UP, a vegetable trader, and his 48-year-old associate Jaipal from Jind, Haryana who runs an auto service station.
Deputy commissioner of police (north) Nupur Prasad said they received input on Tuesday about a gang of auto thieves who would come to Majnu Ka Tila to sell a stolen car.
